Simpler URL specification for Django.

Project description

django-simple-url allows developers to specify Django routes without having to learn the complicated intricacies of regular expressions, and is meant as a drop-in replacement of the native Django url function.


Using django-simple-url is almost the same as using the native Django url function.

# main/
from django_simple_url import simple_url

from . import views

urlpatterns = [
    simple_url('', views.index),

It also works nicely with other apps, like for instance the Django Admin.

# main/
from django.contrib import admin
from django_simple_url import simple_url

urlpatterns = [


It should be noted that even though the type int appears in the syntax <int:post_id>, the value passed to the view is still a string. The int part of the syntax only limits the URLs that are matched, but does not alter the value passed to the view.


The development of this library is inspired by the following post on the Django mailing list: Challenge teaching Django to beginners:
